2020 is almost over, and for many, it cannot come quickly enough.
Yes, it was not an easy year. There were natural disasters, racial injustice and riots, and a world pandemic that not only changed the economic climate but also changed the way people lived and related to others.
But I believe if we want 2021 to a better year, we have to find good in 2020. To truly let something go, without carrying negativity forward into the future, we have to accept and find the good before we can truly move on. If we do not, we carry the negative with us, wherever we go.
Releasing the negativity of the past year is good, and doing some kind of ceremony, makes it even more powerful. However, when you are done listing what you want to let go of, also write down all the good that came this year.
You will have then completed the year and be ready to list your intentions for the new year. Intentions are a road map and help you move in the right direction. It might be something concrete – like a job or home, but it, also, can be our attitude like being more present, more compassionate, kinder, gentler, more conscious, and more loving, to name a few.
So, celebrate the new year but also celebrate the old one – we are the result of all that has happened in our lives and that means not just the positive but the negative as well.
Have a Happy and Safe New Year and may 2021 be all you wish for it to be.
